TP Schools Re-Entry Plan
We are so excited for our students to come back to school. We want our TPS families to know that we are committed to providing a healthy and safe learning environment for all our students. We will continue to provide updates and ongoing information as the CDC and the Marion County Health Department make changes. Please take the time to read the following health and safety protocols that will be implemented throughout the school year. You will also find a link to our 2020-2021 school calendar and school supplies list. We are trusting God during this time of uncertainty and we ask that you join us in praying for the health and safety of our country.
